The Romanesque church of Sant Climent de Pal is one of the best preserved rural complexes in Andorra.
It benefits of a special traditional architecture protection plan since 1997. Its bell tower is Lombard style with three floors of twin windows, the last floor with double twin windows, something unique in Andorra. The church building, the most important exponent of the complex, dates back to the late 11th and early 12th centuries with later extensions in modern times. It has a rectangular nave and retains a large part of its Romanesque walls. The Romanesque apse was replaced by the present one between the 17th and 18th centuries. Inside there is a granite baptismal font, a wooden Romanesque bust of Our Lady of Remedies (13th century), two polychromed wooden processional crosses and a baroque altarpiece devoted to Pope St. Clement, the patron saint of the church (1709). Near to the church is the Romanesque Andorra Interpretation Centre, a very good complement to the church visit.
Group guided tours booked with Romanesque Andorra Interpretation Centre. The tour of the village of Pal is also included on Andorra Tourist Bus route 3, from May to October.
